The Lead Educator will be responsible for contacting potential schools and student groups, scheduling events, working with the RPBO site manager to arrange for physical setup of site for events, recruiting and supervising volunteer educators, and acting as the primary instructor. In addition to offering current programing, the Lead Educator will be required to develop new youth and adult education programs.
